. >> andrea: this is also becoming political issue on the campaign trail. strickland, the ohio governor introducing president obama. instead of leighing the hurricane politics aside he decided to use it as a chance to take a shot at mitt romney. take a listen. >> there is mitt romney who tried to fake compassion to ask people to bring food to a rally. and when they don't do it, they take $5,000 and go to wal-mart and buy food to pass out to the people coming to the rally. so he can get his picture taken loading boxes on a truck. >> andrea: that is so disgusting. >> bob: not disgusting that his campaign bought that stuff. >> andrea: he is trying to help hurricane relief victims. can't you leave politics out of it? if they criticized obama and they're not doing, there would be uproar. >> bob: the romney cam spain not doing it? >> andrea: i haven't heard romney -- >> bob: i was wrong about romney yesterday. i should have said his surrogates are the ones taking enowhere in mouse advantage of this thing -- enormous advantage of this. they went to wal-mart, they handed things to hand to romne

was the focus of president obama's first address here in ohio. again on this riff that you can't trust governor romney. you look at what he said in the past, you look at what he's saying now, and the two things just don't add up. one of the things he was pointing to was this recent auto bailout ad that governor romney's campaign put out in which he suggests chrysler has sold jeeps to the italians and now want to start selling in china. the obama administration says, whoa, we're not moving jobs to china, governor romney's saying, yes, but for every job created in china, that's a job not created here in the united states. president obama firmly on this tack of governor romney has got a big problem in ohio with voters here. here's what he said. >> i understand that governor romney's had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry, and it's hard to run away from that position when you're on videotape saying the words let detroit go bankrupt.
